Description
competing solutions. The evaluation board is
optimized for engineering ease of testing
through programming options, clip leads, test
points, and supporting external components.
The ER3110DI and its sister part, the
ER3105DI, share a common printed circuit
board. The marking on the board below the
“DEMO-ER31XXDI” identifies the version.
This is the ER3110DI Evaluation Board User
Guide. The ER3110DI features wide input
voltage range (3V to 36V), integrated high-side
and low-side NMOS devices, PFM mode for
improved efficiency at light loads, and
protection circuitry against system faults. This
level of integration delivers a substantial
reduction in footprint and part count over

Instructions
The numbers in the instructions below correspond
to the numbers in Figure 1. By following the number
sequence below, the device can be turned on by
step 3.
1) PVIN (P4) - Connect a 3V to 36V power
supply on P4. Do not turn the power supply
on until everything is connected correctly.
2) Ground (P5 and P9) - Connect the input
power supply ground to P5 and the output
ground to P9.
3) VOUT (P7) - Connect the load to P7. If the
instructions were followed up to this point,
the power supply may be turned on. To
disable the evaluation board, turn off the
power supply connected in Step 1 and 2.
The device may also be enabled or disabled
by pulling the EN pin high or low,
respectively.
4) Output Voltage Setting - The output
voltage programming resistor R3, depends
on the value chosen for the feedback
resistor R2 and the desired output voltage
VOUT.
Equation
1
describes the
relationship between VOUT and the resistor
values.

The feedback resistor R2 is chosen as
90.9kΩ. When changing the output voltage
it may also be necessary to change certain
other circuit elements for stability. See
Table 1 for details.
Note 1: Connect Fsw to AVINO
5) Soft Start Capacitor (Css) – If SS is pulled
to AVINO, an internal 2ms timer is selected
for soft-start. For other soft-start times,
simply connect a capacitor from SS to GND.
The soft-start time can be calculated by
Equation 2:
 () = ( ) ∗ 0.109
(2)
6) POK (P1) - This is the open drain POK flag,
which is pulled up to AVIN by R1. When
VOUT is over 90% of regulation, POK will
be pulled high to AVIN; otherwise POK is
pulled low internally.

is tied to AVINO (R10= 0Ω). To adjust the
switching frequency, remove R10 and install
a resistor RFsw (R12) from FSW to GND to
program the switching frequency from
300kHz to 2MHz, as shown in Equation (3)
7) SYNC (P2) – SYNC is connected to AVINO
through the R6 (200kΩ) resistor and sets
the device to operate in PWM mode only.
To set automatic PFM or PWM mode,
remove R6 and install a 0Ω resistor on R9.

Test Recommendations
To guarantee measurement accuracy, the following precautions should be observed:
1. Make all input and output voltage measurements at the board using the test points provided
(P4 to P7). This will eliminate voltage drop across the line and load cables that can produce
false readings.
2. Measure input and output current with series ammeters or accurate shunt resistors. This is
especially important when measuring efficiency.
3. The board includes a pull-up resistor for the POK signal and ready to monitor the power OK
status at clip lead marked POK.
